Washington, DC—The Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) conferred its first class of Fellows of ACCC (F.A.C.C.C.) at its 48th Annual Meeting and Cancer Center Business Summit held in Washington DC, March 1-4, 2022.
The Fellows program was established to honor individuals for their exceptional volunteer service, leadership, and commitment to ACCC and its mission to be the leading education and advocacy organization for the cancer care community.
Recipients of the F.A.C.C.C. designation will be recognized as the association's most active and engaged volunteers—those who have put in countless hours and energy in service to ACCC and its multidisciplinary membership.
The inaugural class of Fellows is made up of ACCC's Past Presidents, as they have demonstrated dedication and leadership at the highest level.
Ten past presidents attended the meeting and were honored during the House of Delegates, ACCC’s annual business meeting. This includes:
Other F.A.C.C.C. recipients include:
Future recipients will be awarded the F.A.C.C.C. designation based on their engagement with ACCC. A point system was created to track qualifying activities, such as serving on the ACCC Board of Trustees, an ACCC committee or program advisory board, serving as a primary contact to a Cancer Program Member, participating in a podcast or writing an article for Oncology Issues, ACCC’s official journal, or speaking at an ACCC meeting. A new class of Fellows of ACCC will be conferred the lifetime F.A.C.C.C. status and recognized among their peers annually at the House of Delegates meeting during the ACCC Annual Meeting & Cancer Center Business Summit.
